A supporter of Dennis Milligan, the Republican candidate for state treasurer, his released a state Ethics Commission complaint he’s filed over campaign reports filed by Karen Garcia, the Democratic candidate for state treasurer.
His release includes a letter from the Ethics Commission saying it will review whether reported contributions from several groups, such as the Democratic Women of Garland County, amount to PAC contributions and whether those groups are properly registered as PACs; the absence of some information on contributors, such as business — isted as not available at the time of the report — and a complaint that a final primary finance report wasn’t filed. Garcia, who had no primary opposition and filed a report for activities through May, but not a report identified as the final primary report.
I’m seeking a comment from Garcia.
David Singer of White Hall filed the complaint.
UPDATE: A statement from Garcia’s campaign spokesman Michael Cook:
“We received a citizen complaint today and are reviewing the claims. Karen Sealy Garcia is committed to putting ethics and transparency first. If unintentional mistakes were made, we will work with the Ethics Commission to resolve any potential problems with the campaign’s filings.”
